I Love the MVP Program

Encarta's MVP, Stephen Stakey, has just launched the Encarta SupportZone- you can find it here. As he says, it's a place to "find how-to guides, videos, and links to other Encarta-related websites".  He's already spent a lot of time in the newsgroup, dug up a lot of the pertinent information that's come over time, and conglomerated it into a centralized location.

This is a great example of how cool the MVP program can really work. Stephen's active on the Encarta newsgroup, has been involved in Encarta Betas for *at least* as long as myself, and does a great job keeping in touch with the product team. It's really enlightening to have a user on the outside who is a great contributor to the product and is a big fan of the app that we spend so much time working on.

Love the site, Stephen!

    I’m so glad you like this idea. This has been something hatched in my brain for a long time. I was first able to discuss this idea with Chris Boar at Microsoft in late 2003 after I had completed the current MCSD track. After that meeting, I followed up to discuss a better certificaton track. Johnathan Goodyear and I pushed this idea until we were heard. I am so glad to see it is going to be implemented, and I’m even more excited that the feedback so far has been positive! This post has made my day!
